I would go with WIX, my all-time favorite cabin air-filter for the Accord and they can be found at O'reillys parts dept!!

Fram, Purolator, etc. Doesn't make a difference.

I like the Fram Fresh Breeze. Seem to do a good job keeping the junk out and the baking soda keeps the car smellin' sweet. The bet part is that they cost way less than the Honda replacements, which are IMO not nearly as good a product. They are available at almost any auto supply place that caries FRAM filters, but they may have to order them in. The website has a great tool for helping you determine the exact part number.

Haven't tried the Bosch. I'll have to check 'em out. Always open to new suggestions!

johnnydinh701,

The smell doesn't come from the filter, it comes from the evaporator case.

I used this to remove the smell in my car's A/C:

I didn't say it HAD to be oem. But if you buy the oem filters you KNOW they're not gonna smell weird, or just have bad quality, b/c they're already in your car.

And oil filters, i stick with Honda, as well as the oil i get from the Honda Dealership. Its a HONDA car, i'm pretty sure Honda is going to know how to make the best filter for their specific oil they use for our cars.

As far as the air filter, i understand K&N is one of the best. It is a highly recommended high flow air filter brand. But do you you seriously need some "high performance" cabin air filters? There's no point in getting some filters that you don't even know if they are good quality or not, when you could just as easily get the oem ones that are MADE by Honda.

I'm just saying, some things are worth finding the best aftermarket part for, but seriously, its a cabin air filter. I think i'll just get the oem one and spend my time worrying about more important things.

To each and his own. If it makes you sleep better at night then that's money well spent.

1. I have honda air filter in my 2010 Honda Accord and the AC smells terrible. I replaced the filter at 10k with fram carbon and it never came back.

2. If you think honda actually makes their filter and fluid/oil then you might want to do more research.

here some reading on filter comparsion




3. i don't consider k&n to be the best or follow their hype. I stick with NAPA GOLD or purolator pureones.

at the end of the day, i'm not saying what you use is bad or convert you.

Honda doesn't spec the best filter for their cars. They have them built by the lowest bidder that meets their specs. Currently that happens to be Honeywell. Honda oil is nothing special, it's a good quality oil but not really any better than any other modern oil that meets the API spec.

Honda also doesn't make any of their filters. They design the specs and have them made by other companies.

I feel dumb now. lol

Well thanks for the links.
Question though, what would be the "best" oil and filter for our cars? or is it just up to preference?
